Aptly nicknamed the "Mile-High City," Denver sits at an altitude of 1,600 m (5,280 ft) above sea level, located right where the Great Plains give way to the Rocky Mountains.
Change things up with these side-trips from Denver: United States Air Force Academy (in Colorado Springs), Historic Georgetown (in Georgetown) and Idaho Springs (St Mary's Glacier, River Rafting & Tubing, & more). Next up on the itinerary: explore and take pictures at Trail Ridge Road, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Denver Zoo, see a show at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and trot along with a tour on horseback.

For other places to visit, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Denver travel route tool .

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are Denver International Airport and City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
